Woman allegedly dumps 50 pounds of feces at police station

Someone is on this Texas woman’s crap list.

Mindy Janette Stephens, 46, the wife of an assistant fire chief, allegedly dumped about 50 pounds of “human s–t” in front of the Electra Police Department last week, KXAN reported.

A police officer noticed a person making a suspicious deposit in front of the station on East Cleveland Avenue on Thursday, authorities said.

“He went outside to see what was going on and discovered three, 5-gallon buckets of what appeared to be human waste,” a affidavit posted by Law & Crime states.

The officer also saw a person clad in a hazmat suit and wearing a yellow mask walking to an SUV with a trailer.

“He attempted to ask what they were doing and a female stated that the buckets were human s— and she was dropping them off. She then got in the vehicle and drove off,” the affidavit says.

A police lieutenant reviewed the surveillance video and recognized the woman’s voice to be Stephens, officials said.

Police Chief Terry Wooten then contacted City Administrator Steve Bowlin about the malodorous matter and noted that the woman is the wife of the assistant fire chief.

Bowlin, who also is a local firefighter, reportedly told Wooten that he would raise a stink with Stephens and order her to “come pick up the buckets or she could face charges.”

But the woman refused to clean up her mess and said it was “not her problem,” the affidavit says.

Stephens was then charged with misdemeanor illegal dumping over 5 pounds and under 500 pounds, a violation of the Texas Health Safety Code.

She was released Friday after posting a $2,000 bond.

In 2020, Stephens was charged with aggravated assault after allegedly attacking a man with a set of keys.

Last year, she reportedly pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of assault and served a short stint behind bars.

A motive for the recent smelly episode was not known.
